VMware recently announced vSphere 6.5, the latest version of its industry-leading virtualization platform. This new release of vSphere features a dramatically simplified experience, comprehensive built-in security, and a universal app platform for running any app. Because there is so much to cover in vSphere 6.5 we decided to break this into a multi-part series starting with vSphere Security. This week Mike Foley joins us to cover some of the security enhancements of 6.5 including VM encryption, Secure boot support for ESX and VMs and actionable logging. And if that isn't enough Mike even provided some musical entertainment for your listening pleasure. Enjoy! Mike Foley is a Senior Technical Marketing Manager at VMware. His primary focus is on security of the core platform (vSphere). He is the current keeper of the vSphere Hardening Guide. His primary goal is to help IT/VI Admins build more secure platforms that stand up to scrutiny from security teams. Previously, Mike was on the evangelist team at RSA where he concentrated on virtualization and cloud security and contributed as a member of the product architect team.
